To sum it up I have gotten rather lazy recently. I host a number of websites (or reasonable low importance) on my ADSL connection for (mainly) people I know. But configuring and maintaining the server has been taking up more and more of my time, I got fed up with continually typin the same commands, so i have created a CLI based interface for it. A BASH script nothing more complicated than that, but already its starting to have more and more features. It can be found at http://benscomputer.no-ip.org/manipulate/
apologies if the page doesnt load, my router is somewhat temperamental at the moment. What I am really after is ideas of what to add to it next. The security of the programs login system needs improving greatly, and I also plan to add a module to control samba to it, but does anyone have any other ideas? it is as much a project for me as it is a useful utility, so I have no problem adding services to it that I will never use, Ill just disable that module if I don't need it.
The program can already talk to you (if configured to do so) through a Text to speech synth such as Festival, just wondering if anyone can think of more features, if people have time bug reports are also very welcome
I havent created documentation for Version 0.2 because the changes are fairly self explanatory, although the documentation for version 0.1 still comes in the tarball. That will be updated soon enough - must get into the habit of updating documentation as I add features
Cheers (and hopefully there will be no ./ effect on my server
